…better time with her, SARAH BARRIOS Thank God You Introduced Me to Your Sister
by Walter Price
The recent smash single from SoCal-based punk-edged pop crafter Sarah Barrios, “Thank God You Introduced Me to Your Sister”, is chock-full of all the near prerequisite bop one would expect, but what this gay anthem has more than most songs of the like, is an authentic storyline that’s gonna resonate with a whole new generation of LGTBQ+ kids. Look, let’s be real, the songwriter herself calls this one, “bisexual fantasy”.
Inspired by a bout of “post-reading depression” after finishing Of Fire & Stars by Audrey Coulthurs, this single goes much deeper than its bounce-inducing vibes. All the while bringing the tingles that come with the sneaky realities and revelations of a new, unexpected fling.
You and your friends
Ain’t as cool as you think
Fake laugh at your jokes
Then tell you I need a drink
And I don’t know that she listened
When she came through the kitchen
With my back to the sink
I know I probably shouldn’t
But it feels so good I wanna die
With her hands in my hair
Oh I love the way she touches
I’m a mess I don’ t care
And I kinda fucking love it, boy
You should’ve know that I have a better time with her
Thank God you introduced me to your sister…
These are the sort of things that can unexpectedly happen at a house party, as you may be fully aware. As the track’s accompanying music video is totally cognizant of the possibilities. Directed by Rozu Creative, it follows our storyteller as she embarks on a lackadaisical day with her bf and mates, and it seems just like any other extraordinarily paint-by-numbers sorta time…until that same bf’s sister joins the get-together, that is. Then, without warning, the chills, they’re multiplying! Amour interdit!!
Call it a coming of age tale, a bisexual daydream, or call it what it is, an anthem for those on a path to self-discovery, individuality, and acceptance. With a helluva party woven throughout…
Playing with fire has never felt so fun.

“Partnerships can be built, but love can’t be coaxed. Love should feel like the first time you gallop a horse flat out. It should make your blood sing. It should terrify you. And some part of you should recognize it the first time you meet the other person’s eyes.” – Audrey Coulthurst
